I took a photo of the palm of my hand today; there was nothing particularly interesting on it — just the intervals I was going to do at the track, along with my goal times. I figured it would be a good idea to take a photo of my hand since it would get smeared by sweat and it would save me from figuring out the pace times later on.
This photo was then uploaded to Flickr.
Later in the day, I go back to Flickr and see a message that one sees much too often on Flickr: ‘Hi, I’m an admin for a group called Palms, and we’d love to have this added to the group!’.
I’m all for groups and what-not, but seriously?
My palm photo has absolutely no aesthetic value. It was taken with my phone, wasn’t composed — you see where I’m coming from. I’m not saying spontaeous photos shouldn’t go in groups, I’m saying that group admin’s could be a teensy bit more selective over the quality of what they’d like in their groups; am I crazy? Get some decent photos of peoples’ palms, damn it!
